This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

A particularly feisty game based on the Space Invaders format, and one of the first color games on the Macintosh.

Note that this is an older version of Solarian II which runs on older systems, but it isn't supported.

The file on the disk image above is 1.04. Added version 1.01, circa 1988.

The previous version are for 68k Macs, but the third download is version 1.1 that was ported to OS X on PPC. It does not work on OS X 10.6 or later. This version is still shareware but is unsupported. It can be purchased from the publisher.

Architecture: 68k PPC

v 1.0.4 doesn't run very well in Classic mode.

If I download Solarian II under 10.6.8, I get an image file. Whether the image nor the Solarian II (classic-) file in it can be activated in Mac OS 9.0.4 (running via SheepShaver). Any help?

This game was absolutely awesome. Excellently structured levels, consistently challenging enemies and great digitised sound effects ala Maelstrom. I need to get Basilisk in addition to vMac purely so I can play this game again. This game came bundled with our LC and throughout our time using that computer we always had time for this game. The whole family loved it. Ah, good times.

I can't get the archive to unstuff properly -- grabbed a screenshot from a copy of v1.04 I have here.
